“Nice Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Walking through the Marriott properties (Surf Club, Ocean Club & Marriott Aruba Stellaris) We walked into La Vista thinking of having a late lunch. They sat us towards the back of the restaurant which is all windows and has a great view of the beach. We noticed they were setting up some type of Buffet and we asked our server which walked us to the area, which wasn't open yet, and explained everything that was being served. We decided to do the buffet and it was definitely worth it. They had 10 hot dishes (veal, chicken, risotto, grouper, tortellini with shrimp, pasta station with 4 different types of pastas, pizza stations, carving station, assortment of cheeses and salad bar, and great dessert station) But bring your appetite!! The price of the buffet is $39.99 and kids are half price.

“Close to Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Went here on our first night in Aruba because it was in the Marriott. Good buffet with plenty of options and a variety of food. Didn't note any local cuisine. A touch on the pricey side.

“Lobster night is a must!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We ate here on our first night and after traveling all day. We were pleasantly surprised with the buffet! I ate 2 large lobster halves(1 large lobster) and it was delicious! I also had some cheese and sampled some salads, beef tips, and sushi. There are also little shot glasses with different desserts and all different cakes. My husband is allergic to seafood and there were plenty of choices there for him. This will definitely be part of our annual restaurant picks for Aruba.

The only drawback is that we liked it so much that we decided to eat there again on a different night. I think the theme was Mediterranean food on this night. We were a little disappointed to see a lot of the food repeated from the lobster night. But, all the food is still good!

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

For the celebration of my fathers birthday we went to La Vista for breakfast. The hostes greeted us with a smile, and when we asked if it was possible to arrange a table with a nice vieuw on the beach, beacause it was my father's birthday she arranged this.
The service was excellent and my father was surprised with a cake and a birthday song!! very thoughtful.
Thank you to you all!!
